Hadjitheodosiou, M. H., Komisarczuk, Peter, Coakley, F. P., Evans, B. G. and Smythe, C. (1993) End-to-end performance analysis for broadband island interconnection via satellite-RACE II/R2074 (Catalyst) project. In: Proceedings of the 3rd European Conference on Satellite Communications - ECSC-3. IET, pp. 170-175. ISBN 0852966032Full text not available from this repository.
The authors present an overview of project R2074/Catalyst, an attempt to demonstrate the applicability of satellites in the provision of broadband island interconnection across Europe. This project, which is part of the RACE II initiative, will set up a demonstrator network to implement the interconnection of various LAN architectures. The authors focus on a study of the expected user performance through the Catalyst network based upon mathematical and simulation models. They investigate the performance of a mix of client/server architectures using Novell NetWare and NEtwork File System protocols, which are supported by either the IEEE 802.3/Ethernet LANs, linked via LAN/ATM/satellite interface units. Areas of further investigation, and the implication of the author's analysis on the actual network architecture are discussed.
